HENRY GOLDING (Nick Young) is exploding onto the leading man scene in the film
with a variety of diverse roles. Following his work on "Crazy Rich Asians," he
quickly scored the
male lead opposite Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively in the psychological thriller
"A Simple Favor,"
a noir film directed by Paul Feig with Feig's Feigco producing. Golding plays
the secretive Sean
Nelson, the husband to Lively's Emily in the film, based on the popular novel by

drama in the vein of "Gone Girl." As mommy blogger Rachel (Kendrick)
investigates her best
friend Emily's disappearance and death, she finds solace in the comforting Sean,
only to discover
things are not as they seem.
Rounding out a trio of diverse roles, Golding recently wrapped BBC/BFi's film
directed by Sundance and BAFTA nominee Hong Khaou. A beautiful character piece,
is the story of Kit, a Vietnamese gay man whose family was forced to flee
Vietnam for London
after the Vietnam War, and who discovers his past is still very much a part of
his life when he
returns to his homeland to spread his mother's ashes.
Golding has spent a career in front of the television camera, formerly
expressing his love
of travel as the host of travel series for the BBC, ESPN and other prestigious
Southeast Asia. In his travels to remote locations, Golding has brought
fascinating adventures to
viewers, including the ancient practices of dying cultures, as well as
awareness, and aided
response teams in Bangkok, Philippines and other natural disaster sites
In addition to being an avid world traveler, Golding has incorporated a love of
physical fitness into his work and counts yoga, cycling, running, and soccer as
with giving back through organizations such as amfAR.
